Holiday Party Looks + Forever Friendships

Ever meet someone and just know instantly that they are YOUR kind of people? Things just click and there’s never an awkward white space in the conversation? Yep, that’s how I feel about this stunning friend of mine!! Meet Angelle of Dashing Darlin’. We connected over the summer and have become great friends these past several months. Our connection was definitely a case of God’s perfect timing. She had reached out to me quite a while back and if I’m honest, I was scared, ya’ll. What if I get super nervous and say something stupid at our first meeting? What if her off-the-charts beauty makes me feel like a complete loser(true story) in my own skin? You know, all the regular insecurity issues at play.

But, one day over the summer I felt God prompting me to reach out to Angelle and meet her in person. A few days later we met up, had lunch and a massive heart-to-heart conversation (tears on my part were involved). We stayed in that restaurant for the better part of three hours until we both were forced to leave to pick up our kiddos from school.

And so that’s how this blessing of a friendship began. We’ve grown close these past several months and I cannot wait to see what 2017 holds for our friendship as we cheer each other on in both our career and personal life!

If you haven’t yet found your “person”, know that I SO understand where you are. I feel like I’ve been searching for this beautiful soul my whole adult life! I pray you find that one person who “gets”, understands and accepts you just for being the amazing person you are!

Subtle Holiday Sparkles with Blu Spero…

Have any dressy parties to go to this holiday season? This little black dress is a great option if you’re looking to go the understated route with some subtle sparkle. The cutaway armhole style has always been a favorite of mine and I think it’s flattering on so many different body types. And at just $56, you honestly cannot go wrong on this one!

I can envision a pretty fur shawl to drape over your shoulders with this look too.

Holiday perfect made super easy and affordable. You’re welcome. 🙂
